We are going to explain to you how to schedule your pc to turn on automatically with Windows 11 without having to install anything. For this, all you will have to do is access the UEFI of your computer, which is the successor to the old BIOS, and do the configuration there.
Here, we are going to do these steps with a DELL brand computer. However, as we will also tell you later, UEFI layout may change depending on manufacturer, so it is possible that the option could be on another site or with another name. Even so, we will tell you the steps from within Windows itself.
Schedule automatic power on in Windows 11
The first thing we are going to have to do is access the UEFI. You can do this by clicking on the button assigned when you restart the PC, something that varies depending on the manufacturer, but from Windows there is another method. Go into settings, go to Windows Update and enter Advanced Options. Here, tap on Recovery, and then press the button Restart now from the Advanced Startup section.
This will restart your computer and take you to advanced startup. In here, you have to click on the option UEFI Firmware SettingsTo get to the option, first click on Troubleshoot, and inside click on Advanced Options, and here you will see the option that we have told you to access the UEFI of your PC or your laptop when you click and accept restart.
Depending on the manufacturer, you can do a previous step to access the UEFI or BIOS. Once inside, go to tab Advanced advanced options (1), y click on the Power Options or power options (2) to search them for the power option. This option might have a different name depending on the manufacturer or the version of the UEFI or BIOS.
Now click on the option Auto Power On (1), which is the automatic start of your computer. It will appear as Disabled because it is deactivated, and when you click on it A window will open where you have to select Enabled and press Intro (2) to activate the option. As we have told you, in the UEFI the name may be different depending on the manufacturer.
Now, all you have left is configure when you want the computer to turn on only. You will be able to choose if you want it to turn on every day or with another frequency, dates, or a specific time for the restart. Once you have done it, before exiting the UEFI you have to go to the option to save the configuration and exit.
